You do not have to have insurance to be seen at our office. In fact, we do not utilize insurance at our office.
As wonderful and grateful to have health insurance, we actually have found that for the type of therapeutic services we provide at our office, by omitting the use of third-party insurance companies allows for 2 major benefits for each patient seen at our office!
– Allowing the cost of treatments from our doctors and therapists to be affordable. Prices can be kept lower because there isn’t the involvement of another entity, which is an outside influence.
– Improving your care during visits without limitations: This means your doctor will have the freedom in creating a care plan and utilizing services for each patient without approvals from an outside third-party entity. This makes your care streamlined and efficient in getting results. No time is lost if an insurance company is involved because usually, there is need for their approval on particular services and/or number of allowed visits.
*General statement: health insurance is greatly beneficial for overall assistance in health care, especially conditions outside of our scope of practice.
Our goal is to provide the best care and the best way for ALL to receive that type of care. 🙂
Although most associate chiropractors as back pain specialists. Your chiropractors at AIM C&F have furthered their education, certifications, and experiences in addressing and aiding in conditions that affect the entire body, including your extremities. Our patients of AIM C&F come in for concerns associated with any part of their body; SHOULDERS, KNEES, ANKLES, FEET, HIP, etc
Your doctors at AIM C&F are equipped with the skill and expertise in analyzing, diagnosing, and treating conditions that affect your daily life. We address your concern, by looking at the big picture (full body) so that your treatments become highly focused on the root of the problem. Symptoms are a sign of dysfunction, sometimes not being the actual issue presented. That is why our full and comprehensive treatment protocol has helped several conditions and ailments that seemed “unfixable” to many patients before meeting and working with AIM C&F!
No referral is necessary to make an appointment with us 🙂 We analyze, assess, and treat many common conditions of the human body. Many of our patients seek our council first if a new issue arises, of which we are more than happy to either treat it right then and there or suggest that patient to seek another healthcare provider for anything that is not in our scope of expertise. This has been proven helpful because not only is that patient equipped with additional information on the issue, but they now know exactly what type of other practitioner for that particular condition.
This is everyone’s favorite question! 🙂 And for good reason, so we understand. As much as we take pride in doing well for our patients and getting better fast, as doctors and providers analyzing/treating a dynamic system (your body that moves every day doing things we don’t see when you’re away from our office) we can come up with a close prediction of how many visits it will take for you to reach desired results. The best way to describe an expected time with us is similar to that of a physical therapist’s office. We typically work on patients from anywhere to weeks to months. *We do have patients that come regularly for years, and it’s because they have reached their optimal level of health, movement, and fitness and looking to maintain this level for their continued success! Just like fitness: working out shouldn’t just be for a few weeks or months, instead working out should be maintained on a consistent basis yearly.
With our office, we pride ourselves in establishing a solution for each patient as quickly as appropriate for the condition presented. Therefore, we do not require patients to sign up for long-term (months – year) treatment contracts. This is because since each case and individual presented into our office are different from the next, the recommended number of visits for resolution is exclusively based on that one person’s condition presented.
